GIS for Surveyors Part 5 - Data exchange


In this workshop, our speakers presented an overview of how data can be prepared in various formats (manual, such as pdf, or digital such as LandXML) and explored how various stakeholders (such as councils or construction industry) might then use these.

The presentation looked at simple software and tools you can use, and walked through geospatial data processing methods, including data preparation, transformation, geometry validation and quality checking.
